    A broken link is an inactive link which will result in an error page being displayed when clicked up on. It usually occurs when the link being pointed towards a web page is either moved to a new address or has been deleted.

    Broken links means many HTTP errors like 404 Page Not Found which means the page requested is no longer valid and you will never be able to get to that link until the publisher corrects the error. But, there are also 302 0r 301 HTTP errors (aka redirects) which technically are not broken because you can still view the page BUT search engines may penalize your for having too many redirects so you also need to find and fix these types of errors on your website as well.

    Reasons for broken links
    An improper URL entered for the link by the website owner.
    The destination website removed the linked web page (causing what is known as a 404 error)
    The destination website permanently moved or no longer exists
    The user has software or is behind a firewall that blocks access to the destination website.
    The website owner linked to a site that is behind a firewall that does not allow outside access (such as an Intranet site or a restricted access area on a website).

    To distinguish Broken Link vs Dead Link
    Broken Link: A broken link refers to any clickable text that should take you to a document, image or web-page, that actually in “Page Not Found”, a time out or any other type of error.

    Dead Link: A hyperlink on a website that points to a Web page that has been deleted or moved. Also called an "orphan link," it may also be a temporary condition if the Web server is down.
